18' Marlin Leo 455 Olds at about 400 hp.  My friends jet ski topped out at 55 and I was pulling away slowly. My guess is around 58 mph at 5000 rpm.

that's like saying that a stock 454 is all you need in a jet boat. But when you built a 454 with a blower and injection that push over 1000hp in the same boat. oh the fun!!! ;D

It's nice to see that at least SOME of you guys like a little boat to go along with
your engine  ;D

Can you hear after a day of running with the over the transom headers??  Just curious.

Sharp though, very sharp!

I had supertapps on my headers for a long time and the fuzz never hassled me . I took them off and it was a night and day diffrence in the front seat . I could actually talk to my wife WHILE RUNNING and when I put in some straight through louvered muffs in . SHIIIIIIIIAAAAAAAT ! All this while running them wet of course .

 ;D  So that's it. Canada is the one screwing up the weather.  Where is Rebel anyhow.  He needs to bring this rain back north where it belongs.   

Wish we coulda hooked up with you when you were up here OC2Vegas

Now back to the topic at hand, who's got the fastest non racing setup.  The NW gang just stole another of the big hitters from down south.

"Stretch Limo" is a 21ft Eliminator Daytona with a 565 BBC by DNE Motorsports powering a custom jet drive. An MPD/Edelbrock Qwikdata system records the performance data, which in 2003 has been a best of 8.55/126+. Note the single 4 barrel carb! (Owner Marty Stretch has since sold this boat).

After Marty sold it the guy installed a 588" chev with a mag 14-71 and stand alone injection and now has sold it again. 
The new owners Matt & Kim Ringer are super cool friends of ours and we're all looking forward to getting this boat up north (where it belongs  ;D)

Well, the Stretch Limo is now in the NorthWest.  Matt and BLT made a non-stop 48hour drive other than refills for Redbull and beef jerky.  Really looking forward to seeing this badass boat run up here.....

Nope, full interior with stereo. Still runs at 114 which is regoddamndiculas iff'n you ask me.  Given the number of 100+ boats in the gang, we are all pushing hard for real jackets, shorts and helmets for next season for those big runs.

Me on the other hand will be in the slow class where flipflops and swimsuits are the proper attire.

No worries, just keep me in mind iff'n you make it back up here and I''l show you around the arsenal that we're assembling up here.

108.2 Radar gun 108.8 gps. need just 2 more mph.  ;D

Nos pass @ 6,900 rpm over a 1,000 ft course. (6,900 with this impeller is absorbing about 1,125 hp+/-)

The boat is still wet, I can air it out a bit that should help:

Thanks Tony,

It made 4 passes back to back off the Nos in the 99 mph range +/- .5 mph 99.7-99.2 at 6,200
If I had thought about it after the last pass I would have spun the intake scoop around to see what it would do. Next year I'll make thee runs back to back and then spin the scoop around. I'll put it in my note book so I don't forget.

5,100  rpm for an Olds and then bang...sounds about right if he was on it for more than 12 seconds.  :(

ya i wish i would have known that olds arent made for holding wide open for more than 6 seconds!

so far.... pulled the oil pan off and one of the bolts was off the rod (WHICH WOULD EXPLAIN THE CLUNK, CLUNK, CLUNK, CLUNK i heard right before i shut it off) . i havn't pulled the heads off yet to see if there was any damage. in the precess of it all. the oil restricter kit and a HUUUGE oil pan is in this motor's future!!!!!
